Belgium-based Belven, a manufacturer of butterfly and ball valves, has taken important steps towards accomplishing a new market strategy, which has enabled it to achieve instant success. An important part of this new growth is the expansion into the Arabian Peninsula, Russia and the CIS. The company is currently involved in the construction of a number of district cooling plants, which must provide cooling to a range of notable high-rise buildings, hotels and metro stations in the UAE. Belven primarily supplies goods for the water applications within the Arabian market. On the Arabian Peninsula, water is the gold of the 21st century, which helps to explain the awareness of issues relating to water management.
